Full English Brexit
  • Description

“Whether we like it or not, Brexit will happen at 11 PM on 29 March, 2019.That much is sure, and is what the people voted for in a free and fair Referendum. What is less clear, and something which only the bravest of soothsayers would have a shot at predicting, is what Britain will be like after that.”

So says long-time Brexiteer British Parliamentarian, James Gray.

Much of this book reflects aspects of his twenty-one years in Parliament – as a backbencher, defence and foreign affairs specialist, and fulfilling a variety of front bench jobs while the Tories were in Opposition (as a Whip, Shadow Defence Minister, Shadow Minister for Rural Affairs, and Shadow Secretary of State for Scotland).

In this groundbreaking book, he tries to lay out what he thinks – or perhaps hopes – Britain will look like over the generations to come. He touches on almost every aspect of British life – from defence and foreign affairs, to the countryside, universities and public services. He looks at Parliament, business and the economy, international trade; at overseas aid, security and law and order.

Above all else, Gray lays out his thoughts about the essential ethos of Britain and the British; and what we will therefore make of our EU-free future.

It’s a wide-ranging, readable, light-hearted and intensely personal stimulus to debate over what the future holds for Britain.

James Gray is the (Conservative) MP for North Wiltshire. A member of Mr Speaker’s Panel of Chairmen, James has a deep interest in Parliament and the Constitution. A Scot by birth and upbringing, he was educated in Glasgow (High School and University) and Christ Church, Oxford. He had a fifteen year career in shipping and the City of London before Parliament. He served for seven years in the Honourable Artillery Company, and later on its Court of Assistants, and in Parliament is Chairman of the All Party Group for the Armed Forces and the Armed Forces Parliamentary Trust. He is a graduate of the Royal College of Defence Studies, a Visiting Fellow of St Antony’s College; Oxford, he served until recently on the House of Commons Defence Committee, and chaired its sub-committee on Defence in the Arctic, and is Patron of a charity which sends boxes to our troops who are overseas at Christmas time.

He has published several books: three on shipping and the futures markets (one of which won a Lloyds of London Book Prize); Crown vs Parliament: Who Takes Britain to War? (which won an RCDS prize); and more recently Poles Apart (2014) and Who Takes Britain to War? (2015). James and his wife, Philippa, live near Bath.
